Really? I was at SMB west in early December making my appt for the penthouse and was told that it could be done at any time. I might have to call for clarification....
1. check first before you buy (don't want to be stuck with an unconvertible van)
2. if you don't like the answer call back and ask again
3. going used might be less expensive to go to an independent offroad shop that is capable of custom builds
I'm just trying to get clarification on the 4x4 conversion you guys offer. I
was there in early December to put my deposit down and make an appt for your
penthouse top. In talking to Jonathan, I was informed that my that the used '08
E-350 EB I just recently purchased could be converted to 4x4 at any time. In
one of the forums (sportsmobileforum.com), some one else stated that he was
told by Alan that 4x4 conversions could only be done to new vehicles. Can a
used '08 be converted to 4WD? What is the correct answer?
Yes, we are currently converting 2008 thru
2011 E-350 chassis with our 4x4 conversions. Jonathan is correct and the person
on the forum is not .* We do need the chassis with the sliding door, and if it
does not have the 4.10 axle, we can change it, but need the 4.10 ratio.
If you could, please post the correct info
to the forum if you would.
The correction to his reply is that they CAN'T convert the vans with the sliding door because the door won't clear the wider wheel base in the rear.
